Nintendo's Japanese Twitter account has confirmed that since Super Mario Maker launched last week more than a million user-generated stages have been uploaded. Just allow that colossal number to sink in for a moment - when you think that Sony's LittleBigPlanet was released in 2008, it took 5 years to get 8 million community levels. At this rate Super Mario Maker will achieve this in eight weeks.

In case you somehow didn't know, Super Mario Maker is a Wii U title which allows you to create your very own Super Mario levels and share them with other players - the catch is that you have to prove you can beat the level before you're allowed to submit it.

To celebrate this remarkable event, Nintendo has posted a new trailer which shows off some of the best user-made stages. Have you had a go at submitting one via our Super Mario Maker sharing tool? You really should.
